We don’t know about your family, but in our home our family seems to gravitate towards two rooms with one of them being the kitchen. The conversation, laughter, and memories made around baking, cooking and food are ones that we will cherish forever. As we are in the Thanksgiving week, our focus is on our many blessings, our family, and of course, our Thanksgiving meal. At Mattie Lu, we want to help you create the perfect space for family gatherings and holidays shared with loved ones. From large items, to small gifts we can provide your family with all of its home furnishings and gift giving needs.

What are some of your family’s traditions? Any dancing in the kitchen?! Some friends have a tradition called “holiday island dancing”. Are you familiar with it? “Holiday island dancing” is where they turn up the music, hold hands, and dance around their kitchen island until they are bent over in stitches from laughing so hard. Sounds like a lot of fun, right? If you need a kitchen island to complete this fun tradition in your own home, we can make that happen! From a large scale full island, to a smaller chopping block, to even an island with moving bar stools, we can fit any lifestyle. Along with dancing, you can also COOK on these islands. In a variety of colors, woods, and finishes we are confident you will find an island to match the desires of your heart.

No holiday would be complete without your big meal to celebrate around a beautiful dining room table. Unsure of the number of guests you can fit around a table? We have a handy diagram showing you how many people each table will seat comfortably…from small families, to large ones we can accommodate your seating needs. Make your holiday shopping even easier and check out our selection of matching chairs and benches in any style you like! We have steel touches, hand-carved edges, or truly traditional pieces that will fit any lifestyle.

If you are a guest this year at someone else’s holiday party, what is more special than bringing your host a handmade house gift for their own kitchen? As described in our previous gift guide blog post, you can find beautiful wooden cheese boardsrolling pins, or decorative metal signs for hanging in their kitchen space! There are few things more special than a thoughtful gift, and we want to help you provide just that to your host or hostess.

At Mattie Lu, family is everything to us. Traditions, holidays, and cooking together make memories that will last a lifetime. We want to help you make your own cherished memories by providing you the home furnishings and decor you need to eat, dance, and cook together. This holiday season we will be spending a lot of time in the heart of our home, enjoying time with our family, and giving thanks for our many blessings…and we want the same for you as well!

From our family to yours, happy Thanksgiving!
